Subject: Fascinating acount of secret societies
Edith Starr Miller, the author of this book, was a British blue blood on par with Princess Diana. She understood occult religions and secret societies as she experienced them first hand--her husband was the 1st Baron of Queenborough, treasurer of the League of Nations and member of British Union of Fascists who helped secure oil monopolies for John D. Rockefeller. Shortly after the book's publication, Edith Starr Miller, age 45, died, as even as the occult Grand Lodge of Canada attested, "under suspicious circumstances." Modernists dismiss Edith as "anti-Semitic," a term used by the narrow-minded to end open-minded discussion. Miller's sin? She wrote that Judaism's goal (and secret societies) was to enpower the super rich by controlling education and the mass media. She felt such goals were Satanic in origin. After reading Miller's opus, it is hard to argue otherwise in light of what is occurring in the world today. The work is simply fascinating.
Subject: Preaching to the Bigoted Roman-Catholic Choir
Miller's book is filled statements and assumptions, and lots of exclamation points to show things are important or exciting. What it distinctly lacks are facts, logic, or reliable sources.
Like many faddists of all kinds (I'm looking at Atlantists especially), Miller confuses what she must prove with what she has proved, leading to futile circular reasoning when we can call it reasoning at all. Like most conspiracy theorists, though, she is not here to reason us into agreeing with her. She is here to shout and inundate us with "facts" to reconfirm our supposed shared extant prejudices.
She assumes *The Protocols of the Elders of Zion* is a book we know or know about, and that we trust it is an accurate depiction of the International Zionist Conspiracy that was written up to expose all and then allowed to fall into outsiders' hands. Right there I had trouble buying into its authenticity when I first heard of it, let alone when I tried to read the nonsense. She assumes we know as a fact that the Christian religion as centered on Roman Catholic belief is a wonderful thing and that we will have no resistance to her claims that all other religions are, at their core, pure, knowing, unabashed Devil-worship, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Gnosticism, and Protestantism as their heir.
She feels no obligation to prove any statement she makes, or to prove any credence in her authorities. If it was ever written or published anywhere, if it says what she wants said, it is completely true *in the manner she interprets it,* and she charges on, freshly fueled.
Thus, a single short sentence, pulled out of context, by a Jewish writer allows her to claim that Judaism never did and still does not exist as a religion, but only as a secret society with a plan for world dominance.
To her flaming anti-Semitism she adds absolute anti-Masonism--that is, the Masonic Lodges are all occult practitioners, bringing in dupes at the lower levels and raising the worthwhile to Luciferian inner circles. I have extreme difficulty picturing my rather uncomplex grandfather and grandmother as any such things, especially their practicing occultism. If I had ever gotten the slightest clue elsewise, as a nearly life-long investigator of the occult I would have followed them into Masonry. I have not personally investigated the whole anti-Masonic business, but in places where I do have knowledge this book is frequently so far off that I find it difficult to credit equally unsupported claims on this topic.
All in all, she seems like a perfect houseguest for Lord Haw-haw: very much the British Nazi sympathiser in embryo. If you already believe as she does, you will find this loaded with "ammunition" to confirm your belief in the Illuminati take-over of the world. If you do not already agree with her, don't be stampeded by her headlong pace and constant claims without verification. Just because it's been published doesn't mean it can't be an utter and malicious lie (this is before Hitler voiced the concept of the Big Lie, but not before they existed). You owe it to yourself to read books on ancient religion and modern history written after her sources, which are often written out of the deep mire of Victorian ignorance, prejudice, and racism.
It's not completely incoherent (unlike some self-published efforts here in the Archives), and it gives some insights and leads to other books, so I'm giving it two stars.
